More About Balloon Valvuloplasty

Balloon Valvuloplasty also known as valvulotomy or valvotomy is a procedure done to open or widen a narrow or stiff (stenotic) heart valve. This procedure uses a balloon catheter to stretch the opening of your narrowed valve to allow more blood to flow through. This procedure provides temporary relief of symptoms. The most common cause of narrowing in the aortic valve is aortic valve stenosis.

Causes of Aortic stenosis

Problems that can cause aortic valve stenosis include:

  • Calcium buildup on the aortic valve. As you age, calcium can build up on the valve, making it hard and thick. This buildup happens over time, so symptoms usually don't appear until after age 65. 
  • Congenital- heart defect born with 
  • Rheumatic fever or endocarditis. These infections can damage the valve. 


Indications for Balloon Valvuloplasty

  • Children and young adults: Balloon valvuloplasty is used successfully for children, and young adults who have symptoms due congenital heart defect e.g bicuspid valve
  • Pregnant women: Valvuloplasty may be used for pregnant women who get aortic valve stenosis symptoms during pregnancy and cannot go in for surgery.
  • As a stop-gap arrangement: If a person is too sick, valvuloplasty may be used until the patient can have the replacement procedure.
  • Use for palliation- in patients with serious conditions that cannot be cured.  


Symptoms of Valvular Stenosis

Aortic valve stenosis is a slow process. For many years,  you will not feel any symptoms. But when the valve will become so narrow (often one-fourth of its normal size) you start having problems. Symptoms are often brought on by exercise when the heart has to work harder.

  • On Auscultation -heart murmur, which is the sound of blood flowing across an abnormal heart valve. A murmur may be the first clinical sign of valve disease if you have no symptoms
  • Echocardiogram: An echocardiogram or “echo” uses sound waves to create a picture of your heart. It shows the different structures of the heart and can show any abnormalities in your valves.
